I do for the most part. IF they are just extremely rude girls then I might not but for the most part I do. I think that it makes them feel good about themselves and then they'll return the nicety later on when you win!

i always do because i have lots of friends who dance against me from my school and other schools. I always say well done because when it is my time (when i won) everyone said well done to me. It made me feel happy and a congradulated them.

The majority of the time I will say congrats to the dancers that placed in my group.

Ha ha I like your style. I definitely would do that too. I usually end up talking to girls back stage so it's rude not to congratulate them. I even congratulate the girl who's my main competition, it gets inside her head haha.

I've only competed two times, but as an adult dancer, I think it is beyond cool to see other adults, so I'm eager to meet the other dancers, chat, find out how they got there, encourage, etc., regardless of wins. I'm not in it for wins, anyway, have no idea what to do with those medals and things. I usually kinda feel like a goober on the stage.

And of course, I love to watch all the younger competitors, and my heart breaks for them when I see a fall or something like that, because I know first hand how hard everyone has been working! So, I spread the cheer as much as a I can.

Its always nice to congratulate the person who has come first. In our school we all congratulate each other up until lately. I have found out the hard way. My daughter has just moved into the fully open grade and everyone was happy for her all bare one. A member of the teacher staff in our school couldn't even said congrats to her even though she told another dance she was very proud of her for coming 5th in her championship even though my daughter came 1st.

So I will always insure my daughter congratulates the person beside her.

I definetly do. People congratulate me, so I congratulate them. There was a case a girl I knew just needed first in her trophy dance to move to prelims and she got first and I got second, and I was more excited for her!

I love to congratulate the winners. If they were from my own school, I always congratulate them. I have some nice friends in my PW group aw well, and yesterday, one told me after we came off the stage, that my SJ was really good. That felt really nice to hear, so I'm going to start doing it to everyone. And I always try to cheer on girls from my school, clap and watch them dance. Although I do think I must be a bit annoying. At the same feis yesterday, I was like whooping for everyone at my school. XD. But it's all good sportsmanship, and I think every dance school should encourage that for their dancers, because not only is it polite and nice to say, but it builds respect for the school. And who wouldn't want that? But the politeness is the main thing.

I compete with the same girls every feis, and we're like a little web of feis friends. I always congratulate them on their placement whether they beat me or I beat them. Sure it's game on when we hit the stage, but side-stage and afterwards we're very nice and supportive of eachother.

Yes, if I see them. Sometimes I have other dances on a different stage right after, but if I see my competitors I'll just say, "Good job - you did great!"

If I'm against my friend(s), I'll hug them and congratulate them, of course.

Yes, you should always congratulate your competition! I know a girl at my school that I always congratulated even though she was mean to my friends and I. She never did the same for me, but I always felt good when I told her "Good Job!" You could always consider it "Killing her with kindness" :)

Always!

I just think it should be done its polite and like people have said its good sportsmanship.

When we compete there is always lots of shaking hands and hugging and congratulating, especially in the older age groups like mine, we are all friends at the end of the day even though we are competitors
